Confirmed: Fringe & Touch Team Up For Seriable Fridays

fringe-touch


FOX has confirmed their fall 2012-13 season lineup, confirming that Kiefer Sutherland’s Touch will indeed move to Friday, where it will pair up with departing sci-fi serial Fringe.

Touch relocates to Fridays at 8PM, where it will lead into the final season of Fringe (9PM). It should be interesting to see how this works out. Perhaps more for Touch given that Fringe is departing next season, but let’s hope two seriable shows can help each other out, as it could have future scheduling implications.

In addition, Kevin Williamson’s The Following starring Kevin Bacon, has been held for midseason. Bacon’s deal means he’s only available for 15 episodes per season, making midseason a logical fit.
